Abstract

Responds to comments by J. P. Ruston et al (see record 1982-03687-001) on the article by the 1st author and D. O. Stringfield (see record 1980-07621-001) that stated that traditional nomothetic assessment of personality traits can be improved by idiographic approaches. It is argued that multiple measurement and idiographic analysis are both useful, albeit orthogonal means of strengthening coefficients in individual difference research, and their combination results in maximal power.
